Can I redeem my gift voucher online?

What are pre-orders?

We aim to bring you new seasons collections offered on pre-order each season, so you can be the first to grab the goods! This enables you to purchase a new season’s item before it is released to the public from the Designer for retail sale. Your order will be dispatched to you on an overnight courier service as soon as the stock arrives in our warehouse. You will receive a tracking confirmation email to let you know the goods are on their way as soon as your order has been scanned in by the courier upon collection.

All orders placed via pre-order must be paid for in full prior to delivery. The delivery times for each item will depend on release of each collection from the Designer. We can provide an estimated time for delivery however we cannot guarantee delivery dates.

If a label or designer cancel any items from production ( or release limited stock) that you have pre-ordered through us, we will refund you immediately and contact you with a refund remittance.

Can I make a special one off order in-store?

Some of our Designers and labels will be more then happy to re-cut or do a one off remake on each season’s collection.  If you are wanting us to order in a specific item or re-cut a garment for you we are happy to contact the Designer on your behalf and arrange this.  However these orders are dependent on stock and fabric ability from the Designer and must be pre-paid for in full before we will go ahead with the order once availability had been confirmed.  If this is something you are interested in please contact us at to enquire about this service.


When should I expect to receive my order?

All orders will be processed for same day dispatch. However if ordered on a weekend day or public holiday it will be processed within 2 hours of the first working day. If for any reason we are unable to meet this same day dispatch turnaround we will contact you to advise. Please allow an extra 1-2 days for rural delivery.
